      Pros

      It a very simple task job, and as long as you do it properly, no one will bother you. Plus good overtime opportunities.

      Cons

      Two 15 minute shifts and a 30 minute lunch. Can't really take breaks or go to the bathroom much.

      Highly politicized toxic environment, imposing mandatory vaccination against law

      Oct 15, 2021 - Software Engineer in Toronto, ON

      Pros

      Working with many decent smart people

      Cons

      This company became highly politicized and "woke". Instead of keeping away politics and propaganda from people's workplaces, GM Canada started to brainwash and divide it's employees, like it happens in communist regimes. People who don't agree with political views being shoved by GM management down a throat can't speak up as they are shut up and shamed. The CEO Mary Barra was praising Joe Biden, among all saying she is very happy he likes GM cars. BLM despite it's violent protests was praised too. Ironically Mary Barra was accused by BLM for racism, good for her and GM. Lastly, the company imposed mandatory vaccines on all it's workers! In the document GM Canada released to all their employees every demand is illegal according to Ontario's law: 1. Demand to disclose personal vaccination status 2. Repressions for those who failed to comply : Termination of employment, Loss or bonuses, Forcing to unpaid leave, Formal letter to file, Safety and compliance discussion. In addition I can mention long working hours, deadlines stress and the worst health benefits I ever saw (my past experience and my friend's current benefits). Working environment became even more stressful and toxic after this private company dare to impose vaccine mandate which violates human rights and current provincial laws, which I have checked with my lawyer. May be GM Canada has insider information from government about changing laws? No wonder specialists are leaving in batches. I'm leaving too, this is not a decent workplace anymore.
